apparently mama dijana is watching this every morning...
That's so cute. From a time when Federer still thought he's the main favourite for hardcourt slams.

Arsen probably looked at these pics and videos everyday and prayed for a reversal of fortunes.
On topic, early misunderstandings often pave the way for solid and lasting relationships. And Roger likes winners( see rel with Tiger woods, Rafa and Sampras) as much as Rafa likes losers, so Nole is moving in the right direction.
“There are always moments when one feels empty and estranged. Such moments are most desirable, for it means the soul has cast its moorings and is sailing for distant places. This is detachment -- when the old is over and the new has not yet come. If you are afraid, the state may be distressing, but there is really nothing to be afraid of. Remember the instruction: Whatever you come across -- go beyond.”
If Novak helps Fed to keep the record, he's bound to become his BFF sooner or later

It's not going to be easy filling up this thread with pics and articles of Roger-Novak lovefests.

Well, Federer's attitude towards Djokovic has definitely improved in the past 12-18 months, naturally today he can't really say anything but good things as Nole's record and grandslam wins back it up. On the otherhand, Rafa attitude towards Nole has been on a steady decline, and it went from hugs and kisses in Indian Wells, to barely a handshake and eye contact in Wimbledon.
My personal opinion? Both have ruined may days, weeks etc for me with past wins against Djokovic and as such I feel inclined not to have either Fedovic or Djodal, if anything Djoray.
